Sons of the Never Wrong
Al Day and Bob Long

Join Sons of the Never Wrong in concert at Space as they kick off their 25th anniversary year-long celebration! Sons is a turbo-charged Altfolk trio from Chicago that delivers witty, whimsical songs with their signature soaring harmonies. In case you're wondering, they're 2 gals and a fella: Bruce Roper, Sue Demel and Deborah Lader. Their odd ball humor and spontaneous stories ignite their live shows and have earned them a cult-like international following. Combining influences of folk, jazz, pop and rock, their sound is wildly original, their energy is contagious and their banter is hilarious. 

“Their lyrics often have the narrative complexity of Leonard Cohen or the nimble wit of Noël Coward. Mention should also be made of the stream of instruments that flowed through the Sons' inexhaustibly dextrous hands during the night, and also of the gorgeous 3-part harmony that has become their vocal signature. They employ it sparingly, but when Roper's astringent croon, Lader's plangent warble, and Demel's athletic purr twine together like a braid, you can just about keel over from ravishment. Fortunately, it’s is so crowded, there's nowhere to keel over to; the worst that can happen is a sort of semi-collapse onto your neighbor's shoulder. With any luck he's someone you know.” Huffington Post
